    Having Trouble With The Weather

    I am a complete Noob here and I am trying to play with a bunch of different features before installing my system into the car. I can't seem to get the weather skin to display any information. I am using the BMV2 skin that came with RR and I changed the XM button to the weather button. I even tried downloading another skin (Digital FX2.0) and I still saw no weather features.

    I have searched throughout this forum and found that other people had the problem of not having their city set, which I checked. I can't find any other solutions though.

    I got the gas price and traffic cams plugins working, so I know the internet connection is good.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Do you have the weather images (downloaded from my website) ? Also, it helps trying a known city for instance like: Chicago, IL for instance... then if it works with a known place, try a different city of your liking.

    Thank you for the quick reply! But alas, I have tried that and it doesn't seem to be working. For some reason I feel like the commands in the skin are not going through. None of the "labels" (as discovered in the skin editor) are showing anything. For example, this code "w0dayicon", displays nothing when I am in RR. Do I need to add these commands to my ExecTBL.ini?

    Thanks again for your help!

    normally, setting the city weather and weather unit in RRConfig is all it takes -- as long as you have all the weather files in place. Are you by any chance using a stripped down version of the OS or anything like that? you could be missing some requires OS files to parse the weather information..

    Please, try the following:

    -Look in RR's folder for any .XML files.. if you find them, delete them.
    -Launch RR and open the Weather screen
    -Close RR
    -Look in RR's folder for any .XML files.. see if any were created.

    I deleted a file called "commands.xml" (I might have put it there when I was getting the voice plugin to work). I opened up RR and went to the weather screen (still nothing) then closed it all and I don't see any new xml files.

    Sorry I am being such a hassle.

    sounds like a problem with the internet connection allright.. do you use a PROXY server to access the internet on your machine ?? If not, check for wininet.dll in your machine, make sure it exists and it's registered.

    I don't think I am using a proxy server (mostly because I am not sure what it is). I located the wininet.dll file in "C:\WINDOWS\system32" but when I tried to register it, I got an error message "C:\WINDOWS\system32\wininet.dll was loaded, but DllRegisterServer entry point was not found." I am not sure what any of this means.

    PS - Are you sure it is the internet, my traffic cams and gas prices seem to be pulling information off the web?

    Try opening this in your web browser:
    http://xoap.weather.com/weather/loca...350c85242b4278

    If it works, set your cityweather=Vila Velha, Brazil

    See if it works in RR, if it doesn't, check your proxy settings on your browser:
    IE - Menu Tools->Internet Options->Connections->Lan Settings (See if use proxy server is checked)
    FireFox - Menu Tools->Options->Network->Settings (see if it's set to direct connect to the internet)
